Her job: to defeat the defeatism of the era.This was so deeply ingrained that all the Establishment, now called the elite, were felt to be good for was managing national decline. They were not even good at that.During the 1970s, official figures show that there were nearly 26,000 strikes costing 128 million working days. No wonder we were going downhill.
